Student Advisory Committee
Adult and Graduate Studies Student Advisory Committee is made up of undergraduate students from each of the academic disciplines that we serve. Selected students from each class site participate. The student led committee meets twice each year to review and discuss their experiences with the program. Of course, we welcome their positive feedback, what is working well, but more importantly we ask them to help us identify areas of improvement, what is not working well. We choose students for the committee who have demonstrated academic success and students who will give us constructive feedback. We ask them to help us find solutions to address the areas of improvement whenever possible.
